Women in Trees (Meaning in the Neighborhood 2)

leave a comment »

This is a vision I had a few years ago. Women seemed to be trapped or escaping from beneath the trees. I tried to relive it in photography, but couldn’t. I had laid out the figure’s outlines on the pavement, (like the homicide outlines of victims) but you couldn’t see the depth.

So I posted nothing and it was like a dam in the flow of the blog. A blank few years.

When I look at them now, I think there is a glimmer there.:

WIT one

This one was like Delacroix’ ” Victory leading the People.”

Then one day not too long ago there was a terrible buzzing outside and ringing, and looking out I saw that these magnificent beasts were being cut down, going extinct.

I feel great sorrow when a tree is cut down. Mixed with great amazement.

That must have been the reason for the long delay: Women in Trees became Men in Trees.
